hello, for the last 3-4...
hello, for the last 3-4 weeks ive been having pain on my side. This was around the time i played basketball and did some pull ups after being inactive for a long time. like tenderness area above my hip and further to the side. I also have teh feeling of unwellness, like its hard to explain, just weak like i need to eat something. That's been going on for the same amount of time as the pain. The pain only hurts when i press on it but i looked at it in the mirror and i see bruise spots from where the area hurts. I don't know if its from me pressing on it alot or what. I had xray and ultrasound done which came out negative. I'm scared if this is leukemia or something because of the bruising and weak feeling. I do have a history of anxiety which is obv but I just dont feel like myself and I don't know why.

This seems to be related to muscular spasm and bruise can be due to repeated pressing over the area. A normal x-ray and ultrasound are reassuring. I would suggest taking advil and massage the area with warm olive oil and give it some time, it will get better in one to two weeks. It does not sound leukemia so do not stress yourself.

hello dr, how do u know its not something seriously wrong? the bruising isnt a scary sign? i also have no fever which i here fever comes along with a high wbc. Also, what can be contributing to my unwell feeling?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
also the side pain has been going on for almost a month now

Yes, leukemia is usually accompanied by low-grade fever as well and high wbc count. If it is more than a month then do get complete blood panel as well and bleeding and clotting test to rule out anything like bleeding disorder .

youre saying there is a chance for leukemia?

No, leukemia is not likely I am saying get tested for bleeding disorders like low and dysfunctional platelets.

Whenever i do get a cut, it heals rather quickly. what would be some chilling signs of something wrong like leukemia or lymphoma? the pain in my side feels like its not getting better. like when i feel my right side compared to my left, it feels more swollen. like i feel tube like sensations, like swollen striated muscle. i feel the same tubing on the left but without it being as prominent.

i could deal with the side pain but what bothers me is the unwell feeling i get. as if im dehydrated or something. wouldnt that be a sign of anemia? funny thing is, when i spoke to you or someone thats calming, my sick feeling goes away.

All your symptoms can be due to anxiety especially feeling of being unwell that is why it gets better when some one reassures you.You are taking stress regarding this issue i think.

you dont think i have anemia or anything serious from what i explained of about my symptoms?

It looks more like anxiety and do not sound anything serious so do not stress yourself.

isn't the bruising alarming at all? the bruises look like finger placement. but why would it bruise? and how confident are you in ur diagnosis? sorry for all the questions.

I can not give you exact diagnosis here just by description. From the whole discussion, it does not sound anything serious, you might have pressed it hard, otherwise, ultrasound or x-ray would have picked something.
